Good dental care and hygiene are essential for the overall health and comfort of your pet. Infected teeth and inflamed gums (gingivitis and periodontal disease) can be a chronic source of pain for both cats and dogs and can affect their ability to play and interact with you. By age three, most dogs and cats have some symptoms of dental disease, which left untreated can lead to tooth loss and more serious illness.
